Things to know when hiring an employee
Hiring a new employee online is not an easy task. There are a lot of things to consider. In the e-commerce world as your company becomes larger you will always need to hire new employees. It might be an easy task processing 500 e-commerce orders a month, but when you get to 10000 orders per month you will need a helping hand.
Hiring a new e-commerce employee is a big task. Even if you are hiring a person to simply respond to emails and customer queries this is a big task at hand. This is due to the fact that the employee will effectively become part of your life. If you hire the wrong employee your business will be jeopardized. It will be financially costly. This might set your business back for some time before you find a replacement. Hiring the best employee plays a role in the overall success of your business. To find the right employee you need to look at more than what they look like on paper.
Always know their basic manners before hiring an employee
There are some people who are competent for the role they are applying for. If they are rude or have a very bad attitude towards your other employees and worst of all your customers, then you should not hire them because their attitude may offset their good work. It is very hard to notice a candidate’s behavior in a job interview as most people will put on their best behavior when going to an interview. The best way to get a true glimpse of a candidate’s behavior is to invite the candidate to lunch or breakfast. Most people with a bad attitude won’t be able to fake it in a real-life scenario.
